Crocheted Tales

100_0466, originally uploaded by picable.

I had the idea of making crocheted dog sweaters, and that I did. Still do, but I learned a LOT along the way. Such as dogs come in all sizes and temperments.

Also, when I followed a pattern for dog sweaters, I quickly realized that the pattern never fit the dog the way it was supposed to. At first, I thought it was because we underestimate just how big our dogs really are. So I would fudge about the size of the sweater so the dog's owner wouldn't be insulted.

After awhile I just accepted that dogs, like people, are all unique. That, and its not as simple as it looks to fit a dog with an outfit. It takes a bit of trial and error.
